Excellent 1811 Watercolour - Francis Nicholson School, Freshwater, Isle of Wight

Item Sold


Excellent 1811 watercolour of a view of All Saint's Church in Freshwater, Isle of Wight. Thought to be painted by a pupil of Francis Nicholson. Freshwater Church is one of the oldest churches on the Isle of Wight, and was listed in the Doomsday survey of 1086.

In excellent condition, nicely framed in gilted frame. Inscription on back includes a biography of Francis Nicholson and an inscription reading:
"R.P.W. wrote that his colleague at the British Museum, who is most informed about these things suggests that this watercolour is the work of a pupil of the topographical and professional artist Francis Nicholson, and that it should be about 1820. Subsequently, the mounters lifted the painting and revealed an inscription on the reverse "View of Freshwater Church, I.O.W, July 21st, 1811". Francis Nicholson is known for a series of delightful views painted for Sir Richard Colt Hoare of Stourhead Wiltshire".
